Since childhood, Faith Cook has loved the writings of John Bunyan - from The Pilgrim's Progress through to his Complete Works. Having written an authoritative, detailed biography of Bunyan, Faith now turns her pen to this popular account of Bunyan's pilgrim path!
Faith Cook has been a lover of John Bunyan's work for many years, first encountering him through The Pilgrim's Progress in preschool years. Later she discovered through his `Complete Works' his many other books and ten years ago she wrote Fearless Pilgrim, a detailed biography of Bunyan. Now she has taken up her pen again to write this well-paced and accessible biography that will appeal to every reader. Inevitably it is more than just a biography: this is a story told so that the Lord Jesus Christ is glorified and the reader can find encouragement for their own pilgrim path. Bunyan suffered in many ways and his own words express best the message this book brings:(God) can make those things that in themselves are most fearful and terrible to behold, the most pleasant, delightful and desirable things. He can make a gaol more beautiful than a palace... He can so sweeten our sufferings with the honey of his word... and make them so easy by the spreading of his feathers over us that we shall not be able to say that in all the world a more comfortable position can be found.
Faith Cook was born in China, the daughter of OMF missionaries, and now lives in Derbyshire. She is married to Paul, who has served as a pastor in churches in Northallerton, Shepshed, and Hull. They have five children and ten grandchildren. Faith's powerful novels and biographies bring formative moments of evangelical history to a wide readership, blending vivid drama with well-researched period detail. She is also an accomplished hymn-writer.
